Bottle gourd + Whole Moong Curry

Bottle gourd  + Whole moong curry is mild spicy curry and it is very easy to prepare with minimum time. It is very simple and healthy curry.


I have used Whole Moong, toor dal and bottle gourd. Mango tokku  (chutney is used for making the curry bit spicy.
It is very simple dal with vegetable and the Whole Moong.
Whole Moong provides loads of proteins to our body. Bottle gourd helps the body to be cool and takes care of blood pressure and control it. It is filled with lots of minerals and vitamins. It is fiber rich and helps the people who are in trouble with constipation.
No Onion or No garlic is added to this Bottle Gourd + Whole Moong Curry.
